The Golden Girls

And Then There Was One - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: When Rose and Dorothy unpack the groceries, Dorothy starts to open the egg carton. It tilts backwards revealing an empty carton. You can also tell it's empty when she carries it to the fridge.

The Case of the Libertine Belle - S7-E2

Plot hole: Blanche comes out of the bathroom to answer the door yet doesn't see the body lying on the bed? Only after the other guy says, "Oh my god" does she notice.

Suggested correction: Blanche never looks in the direction of the dead body. She heads straight to the door after coming out the bathroom.

How can you not notice a dead body lying on the bed in front of you?

Old Boyfriends - S7-E14

Other mistake: Rose and Blanche are having dinner out on the patio with Rose's ex Thor. He says he has to use the restroom - the bathroom is on the other side of the house down the hall, but he's back in 20 seconds.

Yes, We Have No Havanas - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At Fidel's funeral, Sophia talks about him awakening feelings that she had not felt in 35 years. But earlier in the episode, Dorothy said that her father/Sophia's husband has been dead for 27 years. Also earlier, Sophia claimed to have showered with a man 22 years ago.

Blanche Delivers - S6-E1

Other mistake: When the women are talking about Becky's visit, Sophia refers to Dorothy as "The president of knocked up and single." Other episodes established that Dorothy became pregnant when dating her ex-husband, Stan, in high school. She had all of her children with Stan, so she has never been a single pregnant woman.

A Piece of Cake - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: When Mr Ha Ha is talking to Dorothy, the little boy is in the background waiting for his cue to smash the cake in Mr Ha Ha's face.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Sophia loses her glasses, Dorothy answers the door and Sophia says "is this 6151 Richmond St?" In the episode where Dorothy has taken up smoking again and sets off the smoke alarm, Blanche and Rose rush into the kitchen, Blanche dials 9-1-1 and says "send a firetruck to 5161 Richmond, I'm on fire."

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Blanche's attitude towards birthday parties changes throughout the show. Originally, she disliked them, but Rose changed her mind when she invited several men Blanche desired, as is seen in a flashback. In the same episode, the Golden Girls threw a surprise party for her which she was happy about. In a later episode, she hates birthday parties again (with Rose being baffled she doesn't like them), but is happy again at the end of the episode when Rose invites men to her party.

Home Again, Rose (2) - S7-E24

Character mistake: In her first appearance, Kirsten liked Dorothy, Sophia and Blanche and said that after her visit she now understands why Rose loves living with them. In her second appearance, she heavily dislikes the three women and states that she never understood why Rose preferred living with them over moving in with her.

Vacation - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: The "sand" on the beach of the supposedly lonely island Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and the three men stranded on is one solid cloth made of a rubber-like material. It wobbles and bends whenever a character's feet are on-screen.

Dorothy's New Friend - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: Dorothy brings out a pot of coffee and pours it into cups. When her friend Barbara is leaving, Dorothy is holding on to the "hot" coffee pot like it's not even hot. (00:07:50)

To Catch a Neighbor - S2-E24

Character mistake: Sophia tells Dorothy that lying is breaking a commandment, to which Dorothy corrects her by telling her that it's not a commandment. Actually, not lying is in fact a commandment. The biblical quote is "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." Whether it's an error on the part of the writers or an intentional mistake for Dorothy, it's still a mistake.

Sisters of the Bride - S6-E14

Character mistake: Throughout much of the show, except for a few boyfriends Dorothy has had difficulties finding men to go out with her. Much of the show's humor is based around Dorothy looking unattractive and having no dates, and Sophia often desperately tried to arrange a rendezvous for her daughter. Nevertheless, in this episode, Sophia had no problem at all to find a whole bunch of men that are more than willing to go out with her, and according to the suggestive gestures Dorothy mentions, some of them apparently had a strong sexual interest in her after having seen her. They even offered their services to a cheaper price just to go out with her. Why is it so easy for Sophia to find that many men that eager to meet her daughter all of a sudden?

Twice in a Lifetime - S5-E20

Visible crew/equipment: At the very end of the scene at Sophia's new apartment, you can see a boom mic move above Dorothy's head.
